Time flies when you’re having fun, huh? The 2010s have pretty much flown by, presenting us – the listener – with so many seismic shifts in trends and technology that it’s become difficult to keep up. We’ve seen so much come and go over the last ten years, from dubstep and vaporwave to a resurgence in garage rock and a continuation of the age old “rock is dead” debate. Yet one thing has remained a constant: good music. Here at All Things Loud we’ve spent the last few months putting together a list of the decade’s 100 best songs alongside our ongoing album countdown. Today, we kick things off with the first fifty songs to grace our list, namely positions 100 through 51.
